It looks like a new dining and drinking spot is coming to a space in Newton where another restaurant and an Irish pub had both been.
According to a post from the Village 14 blog, District 118 Kitchen + Bar is opening on Needham street in the former Grande Kitchen + Bar/Mick Morgan's space, with a Craigslist job post indicating that the new place will be a "chef-driven concept" that will feature a seasonal menu along with beer, wine, and cocktails. It appears that if all goes as planned, District 118 could be opening in early April according to both Village 14 and the job post.
Grande Kitchen + Bar first opened in the summer of 2017 under the same ownership as Mick Morgan's, but it was a short-lived spot that closed down in December. Mick Morgan's debuted in the space in 2009, with a still-operating location of the pub opening in Sharon in 2011.
The address for this upcoming spot in Newton is: District 118 Kitchen + Bar, 118 Needham Street, Newton, MA, 02464
